Richard Finn Gregory‘s The Boers At The End Of The World (2015) movie trailer stars a community of Afrikaans Boers and Patagonians. The Boers At The End Of The World‘s plot synopsis: “In remote Patagonia, a 100-year-old community of Afrikaans Boers struggles to keep their language and culture alive, while longing to be reunited with their distant families in South Africa.”
I think of myself as a fairly intelligent, semi-well-read, literate student of the world, but I have never in my life heard about this socio-ethnic issue. There is an entire culture – albeit shrinking rapidly – that has been separated by the ocean and time. In Argentina and South Africa, there are hundreds of people that share a culture and a kinship toward one another, and it boggles my mind that this is the first I’ve heard of it.
I guess that tells you how much there is to learn, and how wonderful the conceit of documentary journalism is. You learn, you’re mesmerized, all the while being entertained.
Take a look at the poster and trailer below. What do you think?
I’ll be keeping an eye on this one, as it hasn’t gotten a release date yet. Hopefully this hits theaters stateside. I’m assuming a limited run will happen, for the IFC crowd and various festivals. We’ll see!
